Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) faces down Bill Maher, stands firm on Cuba,_official_portrait,_112th_Congress.jpg

Not only does she buck the vast majority of her party by maintaining her strong and principled stance against the vile and murderous Castro dictatorship in Cuba, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz also stands strong and firm against Bill Maher and three others who attempt to gang up on her on this issue.

    With a face like that, I'm surprised Bill didn't flee, running in terror.

    Or at least having an uncontrollable bowel movement when she faced him down...

    Maher called Sarah Palin a c**t. Game over. Forever.

  • Gusano

    Even a broken clock is right...twice a day...

    Wow, she is right here. I can't believe it. Yes, Gusano, I know. Still she is using the same tone of voice and gestures she uses to support Obama's policies. How can she believe in Obama and be so clever and strong here?

    I actually like her looks. So do me something.

  • I pretty much disagree with Wasserman Schultz on everything except Cuba policy. On that topic, she is as strong and as "right" as anyone. In fact, she is a stronger, more vocal advocate and supporter of freedom in Cuba and the opposition on the island than many Republicans on Capitol Hill. And she does this in complete opposition to her party and the Obama administration, paying the price for it. That says a lot about her, but sadly, it says a lot more about the aforementioned Republicans.

    DWS looks the way she looks. That's not her problem, but her taste (or that of her image consultant) can be dubious, as in over-processed. If anybody looks funny, meaning dysmorphic, it's Maher. He ain't right, as they say down South.

  • Considering the number of times I've seen her lying through her teeth for "the party", I question her motives on her Cuba statements. One thought, very clever to throw in the tidbit about the small number of Cuban Americans among her constituents, and very telling. She's a national figure, and for the Dems, every "Latino" vote counts.

  • Honey

    I do not believe the way she answered them in the face of their ganging up on her, that she says these things for votes. I seldom agree with her but I believe she is being honest here.

  • The fact here is that Wasserman Schultz doesn't need the "Cuban Exile" vote. She's in a ridiculously Democrat district with few Cuban Americans. I don't know why she takes this principled stand on this particular issue, but as dedicated advocate for human rights and democracy in Cuba, I'm glad she does. I just wish more Republicans were as strong on this issue as she is.

  • asombra

    RINOs who won't stand up for what's best for the US are certainly not going to bat for Cuba.

  • She´s a lying party hack and I wouldn´t trust her to walk my dog. JMO.

  • I also wish Republicans would take a stand. Problem is they too are politicians and principles are in short supply there.
